Humankind: “Moon” - 2 mins 11s
An epic struggle for lunar supremacy takes place during this entertaining ad for world-building video game Humankind. The film begins with what appears to be a straightforward re-enactment of the 1969 moon landing... before it quickly becomes apparent that the US astronaut has company.
Director Edouard Salier handles the ensuing low-gravity battle with finesse, as a classical soundtrack augments the inherent comedy of the evenly-matched fight. An unexpected deluge of fresh challengers provides an intriguing note to end on, before viewers are given a look at the sort of gameplay they can expect from the advertised title. Would-be world conquerors, take note.
